Aqua - Turn Back Time Lyrics

Give me time to reason,
give me time to think it through
Passing through the season,
where I cheated you

I will always have a cross to wear,
but the bolt reminds me I was there

So give me strength,
to face this test tonight

If only I could turn back time
If only I had said what I still hide
If only I could turn back time
I would stay for the night. For the night...

Claim your right to science
Claim your right to see the truth
Though my pangs of conscience,
Will drill a hole in you

I seen it coming like a thief in the night,
I seen it coming from the flash of your light

So give me strength,
to face this test tonight

If only I could turn back time
If only I had said what I still hide
If only I could turn back time..
I would stay for the night

The bolt reminds me I was there
the bolt reminds me I was there

If only I could turn back time
If only I had said what I still hide
If only I could turn back time
I would stay for the night

[repeat chorus until fades out]

    The 1990s was the last time we had a shared culture. Political enemies in the current Internet Age were friends with each other back then, and had a lot in common. Nostalgia can be a sanity-restorer.

  5. Bombah Deputta

    If only i could turn back time... i miss the 90s so much

  6. Rommel Cruz

  17. 사람축복받은

    This song reminds me of my stay in was 1998 ...lovely..

  18. Dexter Reyes

    If only I could turn back time. I have a few regrets going back. And I remember them clearly. I was too shy to say "I like you" and show my true feelings to that person. To her. And I know she liked me back but I was too shy, too afraid. A coward. Ever since, I never let anything so painful like that happen to me. I try to. If only I could...

  19. Playback Lopez

    My favorite song..

  30. G.Phillips

    I think of my friend when hearing this song. Her and I used to love each other, and would be together almost everyday. We did pretty much everything together, and even dated briefly back in 1999, but called it off because both of us had some issues to work out due to bad past relationships. I got over mine but it took her awhile to trust again. I waited but decided to move on months after. I hurt her bad and eventually lost contact with her for almost 5 years. To this day (2020) I still love her, and she still loves me to the point where we should probably not be alone. The song "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain reminds me of her also, and vise versa. She would always play that song for me when we were together. I miss her so much!

  31. MagiK

  38. Jamie Forsyth

    She actually had a decent singing voice in this song. This track will certainly be forgotten because all people will remember is the goofy Barbie Girl type songs.

    Ro Tyler

    underrated song. The movie it's from isn't too bad either.Sliding doors.

    A lot of Aqua's songs are genuinely good.
    It isn't just some "nostalgia" thing, you could play these songs to anyone from any generation and they would almost always love it.

  83. Sherwinson Basuel

    From what movie is this?

  84. Duy Nam Nguyen

    At first when i heard this song on the radio, I could not believe this is an Aqua's song because it doesnt have rapid kick and bass like all of their eurodance song. But i still amazed with Lene's voice and the song still hooked me up like instantly <3

  85. Matthew Angelo

    2019 holla!

    This is a very nostalgic song .

  87. Soup Castle

    I remember back then the only way you could listen to your favorite songs was to buy a cassette tape or wait patiently on FM radio.
